“I wanted it to feel disturbingly saccharine, and to be multi-dimensional,” says Jesse Lynn Madera, describing her new Eduardo Sanchez-directed music video, “¡Hola Papi!” which DittyTV is offering the World Premiere for today. Just as the song itself does, the video features Jesse Lynn’s husband, renowned actor Hemky Madera (Weeds, Queen of the South), who says he would “do it again in a heartbeat.” The funny thing is, we’re not so sure he’ll have a
In June of this year, Lafayette, LA-based artist K.C. Jones released her debut solo album Queen of the In Between. Today, she’s following up with the World Premiere of the title track’s official music video. Directed by Tom Krueger, who’s worked with U2, One Direction, and others, the video follows Jones, dressed to the nines, through a lonely post-apocalyptic daydream to an “In Between“ world of nightlife memories, projections cinematically tapping into the COVID-19 lockdown-era psyche of isolation.

Multi-instrumentalist Bailey Crone’s Atlanta-based dream-pop project Bathe Alone released its debut full-length LP Last Looks in early 2021. Today, DittyTV is offering the video World Premiere for “Champagne,“ one of the more groove-oriented tracks from the record. Described by Crone as “music you could lay on the floor and stare at the ceiling to,“ Bathe Alone mixes soft vocal performances with reverb-drenched guitar – a sound that makes for a lovely vibe, despite stemming from miserable experiences.

“Music has always been the art form I’ve pursued while visual art and film have been in the constant periphery,” says New Orleans-based artist Ric Robertson, whose Free Dirt Records release Carolina Child captivates more with each listen. Aside from being an adept multi-instrumentalist and acclaimed singer-songwriter, Robertson is an excellent animator whose music video work has evolved over the last year or so thanks to the extra time brought on by COVID-19 shutdowns and lack
Maja Francis is a Swedish country singer-songwriter of the pop persuasion whose new record A Pink Soft Mess was released in late September via Benny Andersson’s label RMV Grammofon. “A lot of the songs on the album are about my mental health struggles, but also about the beauty in between,” says Francis, a courageous writer and angel-voiced artist who’s been referred to as “Emo Dolly Parton.” This new record is Maja’s return to country music
Americana rocker and Columbus, Ohio-based artist Angela Perley is hard at work on her next LP, the follow-up to 2019’s 4:30. She says that the next album has a different feel than 4:30 but that she wants to keep the details a surprise until closer to the release date. While we eagerly wait to hear what she’s cooking up, we invited Perley to perform a few songs while also asking her some questions about the
Sub Pop recording artist and Toronto-based band Bria, a project brought to life by Bria Salmena and Duncan Hay Jennings (current backing band for Orville Peck), recently released a hopelessly dreamy new EP titled Cuntry Covers Vol. 1. Inspired by the anxiety brought on by 2020’s numerous crises, Salmena decided that cover songs were the avenue for her. “I wanted to listen for what might reflect my life back to me,” she says, “six tracks
Calling and purpose are themes at the forefront of Prospect, the simultaneously uplifting and heartrending new album from Canadian singer-songwriter AHI, released this past Friday via 22nd Sentry/Thirty Tigers. “It’s all about knowing yourself beyond what your family, friends or society think,” says the artist. “Knowing yourself is one of the most challenging, fearsome, yet rewarding things you’ll ever find.” We caught up with AHI to learn about the making of Prospect, what it was
On November 5th, rising singer-songwriter and West Virginia native Charles Wesley Godwin independently released his sophomore studio album How the Mighty Fall, the well-received followup to his 2019 debut solo LP, Seneca. The new record reveals the same earnest and emotionally perceptive country-folk songwriting style that Godwin gave us the first time around, which properly fits his character as the son of a coal miner father and a schoolteacher mother. We caught up with Godwin to
